Guwahati - Australia skipper David Warner won the toss and elected to bowl first in a must-win second Twenty20 International against India in Guwahati on Tuesday.

The visitors, who trail the three-match T20I series 1-0, made one change to the side beaten by nine wickets in the first game. Middle-order batsman Marcus Stoinis replaced all-rounder Dan Christian.

"It looks a good wicket... the first game being played at this stadium, so looking forward to it," Warner said of the Barsapara Cricket Stadium which is hosting its first international.

India captain Virat Kohli named an unchanged line-up as he warned his team of "complacency".

"The pitch looks good to play on, the only thing was the dew factor. We would have bowled first as well. Now we need to make sure we put up good runs on the board," said Kohli.

"We need to keep the winning momentum going. We don't want to be complacent."
